§ Mr. Ian Stewart
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list those compliance cost assessments published during the latest six month period. 
§ Dr. David Clark
The Government are committed to ensuring that regulations are necessary, give effective protection, balance cost and risk, are fair and command public confidence. In accordance with this, we require Departments to produce and publish CCAs for all regulatory proposals likely to have an impact on business, charities and the voluntary 'sector.
I have presented to Parliament today a Command Paper listing 77 CCAs and regulatory appraisals incorporating CCAs published between 1 July 1997 and 31 December 1997. This is the eighth such Command Paper.
